“I have seen, now I know, now I must act.”

Volunteer work, preceptor roles and humanitarian services are important to note as we study Montana’s health workforce.  Here is a group that serves not only our local communities, but travels the world in search of people in need.  Children and adults in the Ukraine, Uganda, Moldova, Serbia, Honduras and Haiti have had the fortune of receiving care from a group of Montana dentists passionate about providing humanitarian aid.  The Montana Dental Outreach Teams (MTDOT) is led by Robert T. Bartoletti of Sheridan and is made up of Montana dentists who practice in the southwest areas of Montana.

The MTDOT serves on various mission trips throughout each year.  The team alternates out for each trip and may often include a student from Carol College or dental hygienist offering to donate his/her time.  10 day trips are the norm for the MTDOT, the group returned this past Sunday from a mission in Guana and will be travelling to to Ugonda May 17th – 28th.  Here is a video highlighting the MTDOT mission in Uganda in 2016 you will hear Dr. Baroletti speak of his desire to help those in need beginning at a very early age.

Donations to the missions can be made on the team’s website.
